Ukrainians, who survived the Great Famine of 1932-1933 and know what genocide is, condole with Jews on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Victor Yushchenko said in an address on January 27, according to the President`s press-office.

“Ukrainians have always remembered the victims of the World War II,” he said.

The President said over 1.5 million of Ukraine`s Jews had been exterminated by the Nazis during the war.

“Ukraine has spared and will spare no effort to ensure that xenophobia and anti-Semitism never become an element of politics.”
